before the game it was a party outside the ballpark. after the game, you should have seen the fans walking out, basically in silence. it was a quiet departure outside the stadium last night. imagine fans probably a little bit in shock. the team wasn't able to pull off the win. still trying to stay upbeat for the giants team. >> it's not good going on the road to win one of two. >> the giants will be heading to philly sometime today. their game tomorrow against the philadelphia phillies at 12:30. reporting live here outside at&t park, bob redell, today in the bay. >> thanks a lot. >> stlar two more chances to end the series, but they have to do it in philly. tomorrow's is at 12:57 p.m. that will change if the yankees lose. if that happens and game time is at 4:57 p.m. if the giants don't win, game

jars out of the ground and saw a human heart with a picture of a young man and woman pinned to it. the second jar contained another human heart, but with a photo of a different couple. >> they are trying to get somebody's attention. i don't know for what reason or purpose. it's really, really odd. kind of weird and creep to me. >> the county coroner said the hearts likely came from dead bodies because of the embalming fluid found on them. it's a crime to dig up body parts and also against the law to buy and sell them. >> two police officers are recovering after their patrol car crashed into a utility pole in san francisco. they were driving on san jose avenue when they hit the and knocked it down after 6:00 last night. the officers were taken to a hospital and treated for injuries, but they are expected to be okay. the pole held up muni electrical lines. san jose avenue had to be closed

to philadelphia reporting there tonight at 11:00. the big game is tomorrow. the giants will be going with jonathan sanchez and the phillies going. if you are an old school giants fan, you don't want to hear this, but you have to tell anyway. the last time they were in this position in 2002, they went on the road they lost both games. that was a world series for the angels. erase that. here's the deal. they packed up the clubhouse and answered all the questions like they usually do. it's business as usual. they don't do things the easy way. it's mixed with torture. we spoke with tim lincecum. >> we don't want to come back to philly. it would have been great to share with the fans in the city. we got opportunity. >> one programming note from tomorrow, it all depends on tonight's yankees and rangers game. scheduled to start about 1:00 p.m. tomorrow pacific time. if the yankees and rangers

to break in. if they had, they would find out they had the wrong house. >> so there is a male outside and inside? >> i don't know. i don't know. i'm locked in my bathroom. i don't know. i just know somebody broke into my house. >> the details of the incident in orange county, florida are under dispute, but it's a good anecdote as to how badly it has gone. bank of america said they checked all of their paperwork and have absolutely no errors and therefore they will continue their foreclosures which is odd because that bank too has been accused of foreclosing on the wrong house or foreclosing on customers's houses, but customers who are not behind in payments. >> what a mess. >> a huge mess. we talk before about what it does it homeowners and house prices. >> confidence is down. if you have no troubles, it is very difficult.
>> disaster number two. >> a lot of people don't have jobs. here's an opportunity for you. getting a job could mean going behind the wheel. that's according to a new report out there this morning. business is up across the board for trucking and railroad companies. union pacific said they moved about 14% more freight than last year and the company is set to hire about 1700 workers. business is also boosting the trucking industry. so much so that their only complaint is a lack of drivers. >> now that we see an increase in freight, these motor carriers are out there looking for drivers. >> some industry an lives say the trucking industry will need 200,000 additional drivers by 2014. you better get your hands on that. >> can you still use your cb? do they still have those? that was huge. >> probably because you can't text while driving either. you need that cb. >> that's right, good buddy. >> big daddy.
>> that's right, folks. we will look over here and maybe i can ask the former transportation secretary. he will be at that event. here in the north bay, we are looking at minor flooding. any time there is rain, we get the flooding reported at lucky drive. the northbound side gets the report this morning, but the southbound side experienced the same amount of rain. watch for it in both direction in the middle lanes. coming over the bridge, things are nice towards the golden gate bridge. we see after effects. these cones have been removed. we haven't seen spinouts here. three or four reported over the course of the morning so far. there may be slick conditions and puddling in the parking lot from the overnight rains zeechlt forecast in a moment. rob has an alliteration. wet and weekend. i don't like that, but that's
that continue to move through the bay area. kind of a cool start. 54 degrees in livermore and san francisco is 59. 61 degrees in oakland and 57 in fairfield. it's just a little bit breezy. mainly wins out of the southwest and south and east from about 5 to 10 miles per hour. some of the showers we are seeing south of san francisco, let's take you here around highway 101 towards alameda. shower across the bay and around san jose and milpitas. light shower activity advancing northeast ward at about 15 miles per hour. we are sort of in a break and clearly offshore, a powerful system cranking up the deep area of low pressure. the outer fringe will start to spill in towards the afternoon. today isolated showers in a few spots and increasing clouds in the afternoon. round two is likely holding off until tonight or tomorrow. light to moderate rain and
sunday round three will pack a punch. winds out of the south at 20 to 30 miles per hour and probably at least two to three itches of rain falling. this is a lot of rain for one weekend for october. seeing the biggest punch and probably a half inch to an inch around the bay area through the weekend. probably the driest of the next three days if you have outdoor plans for today or this afternoon. not so bad. mostly 60s for highs and the weekend looks soggy and windy so make indoor plans to wrap up the weekend. we clear out and the temperatures are staying in the 60s. back to you. >> many travelers think airline food tastes terrible. one airline and a catering company that works with it are trying to change it by putting on the ritz. lsg sky is teaming up with the ritz to bring-star cuisine. they will feature filet mignon
in onion and lightly sauteed chicken and vegetables. it's not like they cook them on the plane. they still to have to freeze and transport it. >> at first it was odd because i don't want to say what they did was wrong, but we made our own steps and we really add to it. >> the menus will be available, but only on lufthansa and first class and business sections. . >> we will tell you what's in store for the south bay police officer who pretended to arrest his daughter's boyfriend. >> up in smoke, a major california mall is still smoldering after a big fire. we will tell you why firefighters were forced to let it burn. >> a major bay area event with a huge change. we will tell you what's in storm
you know it's bad when the press asks if you'd take a lie detector test. meg whitman didn't tell the truth about not voting or about how long she lived in california. she got caught in insider deals at goldman sachs. she changed her story about physically abusing an employee. she campaigned as tough as nails on immigration knowing her housekeeper of 9 years was undocumented. her tv ads have been condemned as false and misleading. and even her hometown newspaper said meg whitman has demonstrated "a loose relationship with the truth"
>> new this morning, the giants hop on the plane for game six. we will let you know why we still don't when they will play. >> 'giants fans have confidence that their team can pull off a clinching win in the championship series. we will have that today in the bay. it is also friday morning. good morning. 5:30. >> i'm brent cannon. this is today in the bay. the giants getting ready to head to philadelphia and a few more
hours. >> they weren't able to beat the phillies and they have to try again tomorrow. the time of the first pitch is up in the air. if the yankees win it tonight, the giants play before 1:00. if the yankees lose and the giants play around 5:00. >> it's been raining here and we look to have a rainy weekend all weekend, but the weather looksb has a look at the forecast in philly. >> it doesn't look that bad. the early start to the game time as temperatures are in the mid 60s and no worries about rain as we kickoff the weekend. back to the west coast, you see the temperatures as we go hour by hour and only in the 60s. clouds filling in and the other thing we are watching is scattered showers. look at the clouds offshore. let's zoom you into san francisco. the morning commute leaving san mateo and oakland and alameda. rain coming in here in the next 10 minutes or so.
>> we will definitely watch for the evenings of that. so far we are looking smooth. watching the 880 camera and i want to show you 680. we had reports of slowing. the live camera shows you barely any car and it is rain not visible, but the map shows you the speed sensors. that's the reason i have been checking so carefully. it may be a result of mist through the air. livermore into the area westbound is moving fine despite the reports of an accident on the side of the road at north flynn. out of town and heading east, it will slow about 3:00 towards tracy. keep that in mind. thanks a lot, mike. a big ball in roseville is still smoldering after a massive fire yesterday. crews could not get inside to fight the fire because of a standoff. they arrested alexander piggy. he allegedly wrote about suicide
on his facebook page. he barricaded himself in a game stop in the mall and several people said they saw him start the fire that led to an explosion that caused part of the mall's roof to collapse. he had a backpack and fears of what might be inside the backpack prevented firefighters from fighting the fire. 60 oakland fifth graders will graduate from a gang prevention program from melrose elementary. they went through six weeks of lessons in the great or gang resistance education and training program. it prevents violence and helps kids develop a relationship with police officers during their early years. small furry creatures have overrun the south bay and an animal shelter is trying to do something about it. there so many chihuahuas in the animal shelter, they are going to host an adopt-a-thon tomorrow. they have 65 of them. they are all spay and neuter and ready to go. you can get for $25.
there were so many chihuahuas last year, a couple of groups flew a bunch to new york for adoption. >> the g men are packing up to head to philadelphia in hopes they don't lose out on the giant opportunity. bob redell is live in san francisco where it's torture as usual for giants fans. good morning. >> torture, but definitely a glimmer of confidence in the fans. this is fred. i know you are on the way to work and stopping by and taking a picture of willie mays outside the ballpark. orange shirt. you think there two extremes of fans. the status tigs and one who thinks they are a scrappy bunch. where do you stand? >> i side with the scrappy. they are going to dig in and win it run by run. >> this is not just talk of false confidence? you believe that in philadelphia they can clinch this? >> statistics can convince you
of what odds are, but a group of young guys who are hungry and willing to dig in and fight. i think my feeling is they are going to do it and carry it off. >> the fact that you might want it more than philadelphia concerning philadelphia has been here before and the giants haven't been in a while? >> you know, i just think this is a different team than it's ever been. the giants before. this group of guys wants it. they just mean to not let anybody stop them. i think they are going do it. they are fighters and they are going to win. >> have a safe bike ride to work and thank goodness it's friday. a lot of fans were thinking this. if this was monday it would be brutal. >> if they win tonight -- >> tomorrow. appreciate it. take it easy, fred. >> reporting live outside at&t
park. >> today in the bay. >> you pulled him over. >> i did. >> no changes are going to be filed against the san jose police officer who pretended to arrest a teen boy who had sex with his daughter. it was caught on cell phone video. the officer was within his right to investigate since it involved potentially unlawful sex between minors. the officer remains on leave because the police department is investigating whether he broke protocol. he did not write a report or refer it to another investigator. >> grant supporters will stage a really. a bart officer shot and killed officer grant who was unarmed on new year's day. the bart station opened. today's rally is part of a national dave protest to stop
police brutality. they will be wearing all black and they plan to display a wall lifting of the names of people they say dieed from police brutality. the rally will be at this bart station. >> scientists at nasa, aames and mountain view have been pouring over data for a full year now that and made a good discovery. >> it is. they me they found all kinds of minerals and have an idea as to what kind of water might be on the moon. they steered a probe into the surface last year and had another probe pass by to see what got stirred up. we know methane, ammonia and silver as reported, the scientists in mountain view say the moon, at least the impact area was quite wet. the irony in all of this is scientists sent the probes to the moon as an advance for a manned mission. the nasa aames was going to be a huge part of this. the constellation program was
canceled by the obama administration and the money could be spent on more pressing problems here at home. scientists are left with what they wanted to find. if they wanted to send men and women to the moon. water and minerals and silver and all the things you needed to create the moon base. they are now going. >> that's interesting because they hope the o pamma administration will revisit it. >> that they will have the money to do. thank a lot. we want to take a look at the commute this morning. >> slicker conditions throughout the east bay out of westbound 80 down the east shore freeway off of the merge with the bridge. if you are heading over towards the san rafael side, you may find roadway flooding. it was reported 101 is off that was 580 and 101 merge or split. we have a spinouts reported. westbound 80 right around ashby or university through berkeley.
slick conditions reported there. the last 45 minutes have reported clear roadways and an 18-minute bridge down to the maze. over the approach looking nice right now. through the tunnel, we are seeing spotty slowing through highway 13 and 580. no major issues. slicker conditions and a live look at oakland shows you the coliseum, and you did show on the radar that sees the weather better than the live shot. there was rain over the last few minutes. >> the camera looking right about here and you can see light rain across the bay and heading into areas south of oakland. moves to the north and east, the same story advancing away from the south bay. you can see isolated pockets of lighter rain. the main event with the first system moved off to the east. between now and the end of the weekend, look at the totals. impressive for this time of year and this is causing issues for the wineries in the north bay. about two to three inches of
rain in sonoma county by the end of the weekend and a half inch over three days. hour by hour, lots of 50s outside. as clouds continue to fill in, we will have a cool day. mostly mid 60s and more rain due in tonight. sunday's system will be the biggest and that will pack wind and rain and will be clearing out probably around this time monday morning. back to you. >> you mention the rain and farmers are workinging around the clock to save their grape harvest. storms could cut the harvest short by dumping an inch or two of rain. farmers are expected to get about 70% of the grapes harvested by tonight. that's because wet chardonnay grapes begin to mold after 48 hours. the harvest is already expected to be smaller than usual this year due it a heat wave in august. time now is 5:39. when you should buy your airline ticks for the holidays.
>> a california man held captive in iran returned to his family. why he was released. >> you are a step closer to taking a trip in space. we will you about the event giving a boost to space tourism. >> getting wet across the area this weekend. we will have lots of things to do as well. stay with us.
>> halloween is more than a week away, but now might be the time to make your holiday travel plans. don't wait for a deal. now is the time to buy. today in the bay's tracy pots is live with a look at how buying now could pay off later on. >> the consumer travel alliance said if you are going to be traveling over the holidays over the next two months, go ahead and get that ticket now. it's probably not going to get any cheaper. it probably is going to get more expensive. we are already seeing thanksgiving fares 6% over last year. december fares, 8% over last year. we believe they can go up to 18% over last year. bottom line here, the airlines have been adding all these new passenger fees. they are not expanding capacity and not adding new planes over the holidays, meaning you may or may not get a seat. demand is up and more people are flying. the same number of seats. that equates to more expensive
tickets and profit frts airlines. several of them posted good strong profits for the 3rd quarter compared to the same time last year. something else you want to keep in mind if you are traveling, new identification rules go into effect november 1st to make sure that people who get on planes are not on terror watch lists. you have to give a little bit more informs like your middle name and date of birth and gender. you can do that in advance and save time at the airport or you can do it when you get to the airport. pack some patience. always good advice. new this morning, a freight ship struck a passenger ferry near amsterdam knocking the skipper into the water. police say he is missing and feared dead. the passenger ferry capsized and rescue workers were able to pull out some of the people from the water. it's unclear how many people were on board. they searched the water for missing people. it happened six miles south of

can pull off the series. >> i grew up here in san francisco and have been going to the giants game since i was 8 yers ole. my grandfather was a die-hard fan and yesterday was the anniversary of his death. he was doing what he wanted to do. >> will he have a guiding force? >> we will get it over there. >> many fans are looking for world series ticks. they are counting and betting on a world series ticket that will include the giants. more on that coming up in the next 10 or 15 minutes. reporting live outside at&t park. >> thanks so much, bob. hoping they were going to win it. >> it didn't quite pan out. 5:46 and want to check in with mike as you head out this morning. some folks might have wet roads. >> definitely over at at&t park. we should put a sad face on the map. the rain also will cause you to
slow your drive into the city because of the slick conditions. rain drifting through the approach and 101 and 280 showing the speeds close to the limit. you may want to slow it down a little bit. you will have to slow it dun or stop for a portion of this because of the presidential motorcade traveling back to sfo this morning. yesterday we saw portions of 280 and 380 closed as well as 1 where are 1. we are on a watch for that. they don't necessarily stipulate the route, but keep that in mind down the peninsula or on the san mateo bridge. the motorcade expected to hit around 10:00 or 11:00. if i get official word, i will let you know. the guy who has official word weather-wise, we will have a look at the forecast. >> take a look at the map and show you what's going on in terms of the showers. you can see those have moved off into sacramento. we have a few lingering showers around the hilltops. let's take you in closer. highway 17, you will see spotty
areas of rain in and that has moved off to the east of san jose as well. to the north bay, a few showers here and still moist air being forced to rise and 10s to ring out raindrops as the system goes by. right now through mid-afternoon, we are in between weather systems. the break is taking place just offshore. a lot more moisture as we jump into the weekend. the first system getting out of the bay area and good enough for a few lingering showers and saturday mostly cloudy and raindroping in north to south during the day. the biggest punch arrives on sunday. that will spill southward during sunday afternoon. when it is wrapped up by the end of the weekend, at least two to three inches of rain for sonoma. the coast down towards the higher elevations of the santa cruz mountains. you may see up to two inches of rain and at least a half inch for most of the bay area in the low lns by the time we get to
